This is taking longer then the real thing

I've been slogging through Peter H. Wilson's The Thirty Years War, like a dismounted knight in full armor through a German peasant's muddy farm field.

I'm on page 261 and no one, I mean not one person, has been defenestrated and it's only 490 more pages until the Peace of Westphalia.

The good news is that if anyone has a test on the genealogy of the Habsburgs in the Holy Roman and Spanish Empires along with all the heads of the lesser German kingdoms, principalities, bishoprics, and duchies prior to the Thirty Years War, I've got the crib notes.
